This Chocolate Cookies recipe with 4 simple ingredients will cure your chocolate craving in nothing flat! 
Super Simple Chocolate Cool Whip Cookies 3 Ingredients www.dineanddish.net

Friends, I have to apologize. My brain just isn’t really in cooking mode this summer. No cooking mode = no blogging mode = I’m really slacking on just about everything around this space lately!

Plus I’m on Weight Watchers and cooking = temptation = eating more than I should. It’s hard to be a food blogger and be on Weight Watchers at the same time! I’m better off just not cooking. And not leaving my house, ever, for that matter. I get too tempted in uncontrolled settings. So that’s it… I’m just going to become a non-blogging, non-cooking hermit so I can stay within my Points range each day, ok?

Super Simple Cool Whip Cookies 3 ingredient www.dineanddish.net

I did finish my 6 mile half marathon training run yesterday, so I had 6 extra Activity Points by 9am. And heaven help me if I was going to let those hard earned Points go to waste! Naturally, the best solution was to make cookies. I was too tired from my run to do anything that required much effort so I made Cool Whip Cookies. I had an extra tub of Cool Whip in my fridge from my Wendy’s Copycat Frosty making day and always have a box or two of cake mix on hand. It was the perfect solution!

I’ve seen this recipe for Cool Whip Cookies around the web for so many years now… I’m not sure where the origination was, but I should probably bow down and thank whomever it was because these are the tastiest cookies, ever. Especially for the ease.  It’s so versatile too! From plain vanilla Cool Whip cookies, like Cookies & Cups made to the Lemon Burst cookies from TidyMom, it’s pretty neat to see what deliciousness 3 ingredients can turn into when combined. Well, and Yummy Healthy Easy says her Strawberry version is practically guilt-free… I’m going to go ahead and say her word is gospel, because I may have had more than one ;)

Instructions

  1. Combine cake mix, Cool Whip and egg in a large bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. Batter will be sticky and thick.

  1. My fave kind of cookie! I have been walking five miles a day for that extra bowl of summer ice cream! I love the whole Cool Whip concept going on here too!

  2. I need to make those cookies! So many fun ways to change them up and create something different each time! Love this one!

  3. I can’t believe how easy this recipe is! Thank you, because I have been very lazy lately and haven’t felt like cooking or baking either. I have felt like eating though, which means I do have to cook. At least now I have an easy, fool proof cookie recipe to bake!

  4. Kristen,

    Wow…you go girl! I’m so proud of your half marathon training. One day I hope to get back to that. Last October I got up to 10 miles as my longest run. :) But the timing was not right within my family to continue at the time. Right now I’m happy to get out and walk 1 to 1 1/2 miles and run 1 mile a day for a total of 2 to 2 1/2 miles total. It’s really invigorating, and helps me to combat the weight while on vacation.

    Now I’m back and trying to clean up my eating and drop a few pounds. I only put on 2-3 on vacation…good thing I was running and walking. Once I lose those…I’ll be back at goal.

    Enjoy your kids and your summer!! It’s precious time that’s for sure. ;)

  5. I contemplated going on weight watchers after Christmas. I give you kudos girl! I couldn’t do it! You are so right, too many temptations!!! I am also in the midst of a summer strike when it comes to cooking. I have been making the same things week after week, but I don’t care because I refuse to operate the oven.

  6. I can get on board with these. Simple & they look delish. I’m feeling the pain in your words when it comes to not being able to get in the kitchen without the worry. Maybe if you pass it all to the kids before you get some – but that doesn’t help during the photo process which always results in some sampling of the parts that were in the shot. Because once they have been touched & played with they certainly can’t go in the container with the rest- they just have to be eaten right?!! :)

  7. These sound so easy and simple!
    Love the Cool Whip, and the fact you can use a variety of Cake Mixes! =)

  8. It’s funny but chocolate cookies (of any description) are the one sweet eat I just never get bored of eating. Bake me a fresh box of cookies and I’m anyone’s :-)

  9. Wow! These are super simple :) I love this recipe!

  10. These are so good and tasty!

  11. Just made these with my daughter (she did the sugar rolling). They are so yummy and EASY! LOVE IT!! I keep saying, “just one more… just one more…” Wow, they are so good! :)

  12. I got this recipe through my WW meeting years ago. When you say batter is sticky, you aren’t kidding. Just couldn’t get the cookies right. Might give it another try. If you have any suggestions on how to handle the extra sticky batter, I’m all ears. Also, congrats on training for a half marathon.

    • If I remember correctly I tried to keep my hands slightly wet as I worked with the dough. It was still very sticky, but they turned out great!
      Thanks for the congrats :) It’s in 2 weeks and at this point I’m just really ready to get it over with :)

  2. […] Cool Whip Cookies: I found a recipe floating around Facebook and then I did a little google search. Basically, you take any flavor cake mix you want, add an eight ounce container of thawed Cool Whip, and an egg. You mix it and get a nice cookie dough. You drop balls of dough into powdered sugar and throw them in a pre-heated 350 F degree oven. Then you let them cool and eat up. I made two versions- one using devil’s food cake mix (they taste like Archway Dutch Chocolate Cookies) and the other using white cake mix with lemon and lime zest (they remind me of those evil Lofthouse cookies that I love). I also chose not to throw the dough into powdered sugar. I just sprinkled a little on top before I baked. The results are delicious and since I used fat free Cool Whip, we are talking really light cookies. […]
